Maanagaram (2017) is widely acclaimed as one of the best Tamil films released in recent times. The director of the film, Lokesh Kanagaraj has since been keenly noted by film buffs for what he is going to take up next. There were rumors that he will be working with Suriya but there was no confirmation in that regard. The latest on Lokesh is that he will be working with Karthi (#Karthi18) for a full-fledged action thriller to be produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the banner which is currently producing NGK with Suriya and also a film with Jyotika.
The interesting aspect of the film is that it won’t be having a heroine despite the presence of a romantic angle in Karthi’s character. It’s quite a gutsy move by the team to eschew the heroine’s part and deciding to make a hardcore action film.
The film will be shot predominantly in Chennai and Tirunelveli, and is expected to be treated in an intense manner. The twins Anbariv will be taking care of the stunts. The other crew members are as follows:
Music - Sam C.S
Cinematography - Sathyan Sooryan
Editing - Philomin Raj
Art - Satish Kumar
Dialogues - Pon Parthipan
Naren (Anjathey) will also be doing a key role in this as yet untitled film.
